OPI Infinite Shine Spring 2016 Collection: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
For Spring 2016, OPI is adding eight brand new shades to its Infinite Shine Collection. With a gel-like shine and no need for LED/UV curing, the Infinite Shine range is a three-step manicure process that promises to last at least ten days. To see some swatches and individual reviews for these shades, click.......

For the swatches below, I did not use the Infinite Shine base or top coat in order to most clearly showcase the formulation of the colors. For the full Infinite Shine effect, the full three-step system should be adhered to.
Don't Provoke the Plum!:
This is a pretty bright plum cream. The formulation is very rich and pigmented; I almost got away with one coat but I used two just in case.
Don't Provoke the Plum!, two coats with no top coat.
Half Past Nude:
A soft pink nude, Half Past Nude is very sheer. I used three coats for the swatches below but there was still some patchiness.
Half Past Nude, two coats with no top coat.
In Familiar Terra-tory:
In the bottle this shade looks like a smoky soft orange but when swatched it appears a bit brighter. The formulation is nice and rich, I used two coats for the swatches below.

It's Pink P.M.:
This is a pale white with a tint of pink. The formulation is slightly sheer; I needed three coats for a mostly opaque coverage.
It's Pink P.M., three coats with no top coat.
Olive for Green:
A sophisticated camouflage green, Olive for Green is surprisingly sheer. Although this is a cream, the formulation is visibly streaky. I used three coats for the swatches below.

Reach for the Sky:
This is a pretty baby blue. Creamy and nicely pigmented, Reach for the Sky is an easy two-coater.

A bright baby pink, Rose Against Time is quite sheer-three coats for a mostly opaque coverage.
